All-Purpose Gochujang Sauce
Handcrafted in Victoria, BC. All-natural ingredients and no preservatives. Gluten-Free/Vegan.
Our All-Purpose Gochujang sauce is made for the folks who prefer a pre-made sauce that you can skip tedious steps of chopping, mashing, and mixing. We did the work for you! This type of sauce is known as 'Manneung Yangnyumjang' (Manneung=All purpose, Yangnyumjang = Seasoning sauce) in Korea. As the name implies, this sauce can be used in a variety of dishes such as Geotjeori (quick fresh kimchi salad), Stir-fries, soups, cold & hot noodles, etc. All the flavour enhancing ingredients are concocted, then matured before they arrive in your hands.
One of the key ingredients for this sauce is SAKE LEES (Sake-kasu). Sake lees is a by-product that comes from the sake-making process. It is jam-packed with nutrients. It is used for fermented pickled vegetables, miso soup, amazake (Japanese fermented rice drink), ice cream, bread, meat tenderizer, and more. We use sake lees as a natural preservative, flavour enhancer, and for health benefits. We proudly source our sake lees from a local sake brewery, Artisan Sake Maker, on Granville Island, Vancouver.
We are also proud to use Korean grown and sun-dried Gochugaru; Korean red chili powder (Taeyangcho)
